The NHS have launched the contact tracing app for COVID-19. They have sent information about this to schools which we think is important to share with you.
It is entirely your decision to download and use the app. Given the rising rate of infections nationally it seems like a very sensible choice and another tool in our toolkit along with the safety measures we already follow. There is a great emphasis on the security of the app and that it does not use your personal data, which is reassuring.
